Many of us do not like to think about bad things, especially bad things
happening to ourselves or our family. But let's be adults –
it must be done. One very useful tool in the estate planning world is
the Power of Attorney. If there was a catastrophic event in your life
which rendered you unable to function or care for yourself, who would
make the decisions and handle your affairs – especially if your
spouse cannot do it or is no longer living.
A simple power of attorney can resolve these issues and give you peace
of mind. With a power of attorney, you name your agent and any back-up
agent to handle these matters if they come to pass. A power of attorney
eliminates the need for a court to decide who will be your agent and keeps
your matters private. Schedule an hour of your time to learn about a power
of attorney and give yourself peace of mind.
